The NPS-ANPR is a open source LRP system developed to aid in the fight against crime in South Africa
The NPS-ANPR is a small camera and processor that analyse images captured by the camera and detect vehicle registration numbers, if a vehicle registration number is detected the processor will contact the CLOUD based servers and submit the plate for further analysis.
